A collision between two vehicles in the Botriver region of the Western Cape has left one woman dead and 10 others injured, including a six-year-old child.

Speaking to SABC News Western Cape, provincial transport spokesperson Jeandré Bakker said the driver of one of the vehicles lost control and crashed into a Quantum that was transporting 10 people on Tuesday morning [February 2].

According to Bakker, the initial reports suggest that a Ford Figo was making its way to Caledon while the Quantum was headed towards Cape Town.

“The Figo driver lost control of the vehicle and collided with the Quantum head-on,” he said.

There is currently a stop-and-go in place on the N2 near Botriver.
